Staff or students at Deakin University are required to submit a New Application and obtain approval from the Animal Ethics Committee (AEC) if they intend on using animals for research or teaching. Approval must be obtained prior to commencing the project. The application form can be found on the forms and guidelines page.
Approval will only be given for a maximum of 3 years, subject to annual review of the project.
New animal ethics applications must undergo a pre-review process prior to submission to the AEC. This process will provide feedback and recommendations on the application to be considered by researchers.

If you are unable to include scanned or electronic signatures in the electronic submission, hard copy signature sheets must be provided to the Animal Ethics Office, Deakin Research Integrity, Waurn Ponds prior to the committee meeting date.
